Drafted 1st overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins, Thornton played six stellar seasons for Boston before being traded to the San Jose Sharks in 2005. With his imposing 6-4, 220-pound frame, this native of St. Thomas, Ontario is everything you want in a hockey player. A nose-to-the-grindstone goal here, a flashy pass there, and an occasional cross-check when the ref's not looking-it's all part of his repertoire. A perennial NHL All-Star and 2010 Team Canada Winter Olympic Gold Medalist, Joe is one of the premier players in the game. In his first season in San Jose, all he did was win the Hart Trophy (NHL MVP) and Art Ross Trophy (most points in the League with 125). In 2008/09, Joe led the Sharks to the franchise's first ever Presidents Trophy as San Jose had the most points in the League (53 wins and 117 points). In 2010 he led the Sharks to the Western Conference Finals (for the 2nd year in a row) and also was an important part of Team Canada's 2010 Olympic Gold Medal team. In other words, there has been lots of success for Joe during his career. A sure-fire HOFer, this official Sharks Logo Puck is hand-signed by Joe and includes customized Jumbo Case. The case includes wood base, mirrored bottom, UV-protective glass and puck stand. A great collectible from one of the All-Time Best to have worn a Sharks Sweater. Fear the Fin!
